The necessity of rehabilitating and revitalizing the ancient Sanskrit Learning was ardently felt during the Congress Ministry of 1937-39 and a committee under the Presidentship of the Late Maharaja dhiraja of Darbhanga Sir Kameshwara Singhjee Bahadur, K.C.I.E, LLB., D.LITT., was appointed to devise a scheme for promoting Sanskrit Education in this state.
Through the initiative of Shri M.S.Anney, Governor of Bihar, Shri Acarya Badrinatha Verma, Minister of Education, Bihar and Shri J.C. Mathur, ICS, Secretary to the Department of Education, the matter was taken up in earnest in 1951. On the 20th October, 1951 Shri J.C.Mathur places his scheme before the Government for the establishment of the Sanskrit Research Institute in Mithila, dealing with its aims and objectives, research project, administrative structure and method of teaching. It also places emphasis on the collection and survey of rare manuscripts, laid down rules for admission of students and so forth.
It was on November 21, 1951 that the foundation stone of the Mithila Institute of Post-graduate Studies and research in Sanskrit Learning was laid by the late lamented dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of the Indian Union at Maheshanagar, Darbhanga on the 61 Bighas, 13 Katthas, 13 Dhurs and 44 Dhurkis of land donated by the late Maharajadhiraja Shri Kameshwara Singh.
